BACKGROUND The effects of sociocultural status on periodontal conditions in pregnant women have been reported by a number of researchers and there have been speculations about the effects of hormonal changes, patients' systemic health, and socio-cultural characteristics on periodontal health during pregnancy. METHODS This study evaluates the periodontal(More)
AIMS The objective of this randomised controlled trial was to compare the efficacy of two techniques for increasing the amount of keratinised mucosa around implants: free gingival grafts versus classic vestibuloplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-four patients with 64 implants presenting keratinised mucosa <1.5 mm and showing signs of peri-implant(More)
BACKGROUND The increase in circulating levels of progesterone during pregnancy stimulates production of prostaglandins, especially prostaglandin E2, possibly resulting in pregnancy gingivitis. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the influence of prostaglandin E2 concentrations on gingival tissues in pregnancy and to assess its relationship to clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the levels of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and matrix metalloproteinases-8 (MMP-8) in periimplant crevicular fluid (PICF) after osseointegration and loading. MATERIALS AND METHODS PICF was collected at the 3rd, 6th, 12th, and 18th months after implantation of 72 implants. PGE2 and MMP-8 levels besides clinical parameters were evaluated. (More)
PURPOSE The aim of this prospective clinical trial was to compare the three-dimensional marginal bone level, implant stability, and peri-implant health of two types of submerged dental implants that were restored with matching or platform-switched abutments. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-five subjects were recruited (test group: 43 implants with internal(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy between the use of bovine bone graft material and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) mixture (test group) and bovine bone graft material and collagen membrane combination (control group) in 2-stage maxillary sinus augmentation. According to specific inclusion/exclusion criteria, patients treated between 2008 and(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this randomised controlled trial is to compare the efficacy of two techniques for enhancing peri-implant keratinised mucosa: acellular dermal matrix allograft versus free gingival grafts. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six patients having implant sites with less than 1.5 mm of keratinised mucosa width were randomly assigned to two(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic potentials and practical advantages of different imaging modalities in detecting bone defects around dental implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS Crestal bone defects with sequentially larger diameters were randomly prepared around 100 implants that were inserted in bovine bone blocks. Conventional(More)
Mixed-phase TiO2 nanocomposite thin films consisting of anatase and rutile prepared on commercially pure Ti sheets via the electrochemical anodization and annealing treatments were investigated in terms of their photocatalytic activity for antibacterial use around dental implants. The resulting films were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM),(More)
The present study evaluated the effects of systemic minocycline on clinical and biochemical parameters of chronic periodontitis, which is a common inflammatory disorder of the periodontium initiated by the presence of bacteria in the gingival sulcus. Besides nonsurgical periodontal therapy, 20 individuals received minocycline systemically while another 20(More)
